Christine, what a very nice place you provided us for our 3 night stay. The weather was also very nice, so we did not need to light the fire. Manapouri is very close to both Te Anau and Milford Sound, which is why we chose your place. Cheers,
David, Donna & Fiona.
Staying in Manapouri was a convenient way to break up the trip to Milford Sound. We really liked that one of the rooms was in a separate building for a bit more privacy. Amazing stars too!
Rustic cain in a quiet village with easy distance to Te Anau.
Host responsive to our needs.
In March it takes a while to heat the cabin using electric heaters.
This is a good place for those who want to be alone. For us, we enjoy having hosts present which wasn't the case here.
What a lovely, quiet place to relax and unwind! We had great weather over our two night stay so we took advantage of the garden, lying outside and reading in the sun. Thank you for the bikes -we took them for a spin along past the lake. The scenery and views were amazing! The rustic cottage was a great place to stay for our trip to Doubtful Sounds as the house is about a 5 minute walk away. We highly recommend the trip with Real Journeys. The views are stunning and the crew were friendly.
In one word: AWESOME STAY. The cabin is very cosy and rustical. We were really happy to stay here. We had bikes to make a trip around to the lake. In the evening we made a fire in the fire place. Super soundsystem with genial radio music. Clean and tidy. One of the best if not THE BEST AirBnb we had in New Zealand. Highly recommended to everybody!!!
Great place to stay, wish I could've stayed longer... Very east to deal with...
What a lovely Home ! Very warm And cosy!
We spent a wonderful time there.
We really recommend this place. You will find everything you need to enjoy your stay! (Even games, movies, And especially the music - with a great compilation just next to the radio)
Thanks for everything !
After the Milford Track, trek - this little cottage on the beautiful bay of Manapouri was perfect. About a 15 - 20 min drive from Te Anau, it's such a peaceful little place to stay and recuperate. The five of us walked in, chopped a bit of firewood, lit the fire, and collapsed into the beautiful beds.
We awoke to a beautiful bay in the morning before our journey back to Queenstown. Thanks, Christine, for the cute little cottage.
We had a great, but quick one night stay at this cottage. Rustic charm. Would have been great to cozy up by the fireplace but it was a hot summer night!
The house is located close to the starting point for the excursion to the Doubtful Sound, and in a very quiet neighborhood, this was positive.
Unfortunately, we had not a good stay. I was guided by positive comments of previous stays, and after our adverse first night experienced I read once more those comments and seems like I visited a different accommodation. From my experience there was low comfort and the house was dirty. As an example, in the bed of my son we found and old sock, so we were wondering if the bed sheets had really been changed before we go. Elements in the kitchen, such as a coffee jar were dirty. And the general perception was that the accommodation needs to be much cleaner.
On the comfort side, the house is an old one, which in itself is not at all a problem (on the contrary) but require a significant transformation to give a better rating, we didn't feel the comfort . We had booked two nights, but left in the second and went to a motel, were we came back to an acceptable level of comfort.
I believe this house can be an interesting accomodation for other visitors as long as the comfort and cleanliness are significantly enhanced.
Christine is a very pleasant guest.I recommended it!
